    Why You Need a Lawyer

    Hiring a personal injury lawyer to represent your swimming pool accident claim is the best way to ensure that you come out at the end with everything you need to move forward with your life. Swimming pool accidents are often tragic, and having to pay off medical expenses for years to come out of your own pocket, in addition to dealing with the fallout of a traumatic accident, is not a healthy way to live.

    A good lawyer who is experienced in working with clients dealing with swimming pool accidents can help you every step of the way by informing you of specific pool safety laws, gathering evidence, and talking with medical experts and manufacturers while treating you with the understanding and respect you deserve. Pool safety laws can vary depending on which city you live in, so it might difficult to be up-to-date on every single law concerning your case. This is just one of the reasons why trying to file a swimming pool accident personal injury or wrongful death claim on your own is not advisable.

    In addition to the complexity of local and state laws, there is also the matter of immersing yourself in a case that might be too fresh on your mind to properly handle. Regardless of the cause of the injury or death in a swimming pool accident, it’s always best to talk to a lawyer before filing a lawsuit.

    Cases We Handle

    Swimming Pool Accident Lawyers in WarwickSwimming pool accidents can lead to a wide range of injuries and even death. Unfortunately, drowning is a common and very tragic result of accidents that take place in swimming pools. Some of the most common swimming pool accidents that we handle are:

    • Drowning: Drowning occurs most often when people are simply not paying attention. Small children can fall into water that is not properly blocked off and drown before anyone has time to rescue them.
    • Entrapment/entanglement in pool machinery or equipment: This happens when hair or clothing becomes caught in pool filters or drains, leading to drownings or superficial injuries.
    • Broken bones: These injuries are usually caused by slip-and-fall accidents in pool areas which are usually wet and may not be properly policed or marked.
    • Head injuries, including brain damage from near-drowning: This type of injury commonly occurs when someone has been drowning without anyone’s knowledge.
    • Electrocution: People are at risk of electrocution when electronic devices such as radios or speakers are plugged in too close to pools. Sometimes lighting equipment or other pool utilities spark or fall in the water. Such a case might mean that a pool area has not been safely maintained by the owner.

    It’s not always constructive to look for someone to blame in the case of an accident, and it may not seem obvious that there is anyone to blame at all in some cases. However, wanting to pursue a course of action when an individual, business, or government entity has been negligent and harmed you or a loved one is not vindictive. In fact, you may help people in the future avoid a similar situation if you do take action.

    Owners of swimming pools have a responsibility to make sure their pool is safe to enjoy, and it may be possible that negligence on their part led to your accident or injuries. Manufacturers also have a responsibility to make sure their products are safe for use. If they’re defective, and that defect caused death or injury, that would be a case to take up with the manufacturer of that product. At the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, Accident & Injury Lawyers, Ltd., we handle all kinds of pool-related accidents, no matter how complex.
